So, a long time ago, a VERY long time ago, Carly nominated me for the Sunshine Award. I had half of the questions answered and sitting in my drafts folder, not wanting to publish it because I had already done Amanda’s and Kim’s within a close time period and let’s be honest, none of you want to hear me talk about myself that much. So now that you’ve forgotten everything about me, here’s 10 more things you get to learn!
Thanks so much, Carly, for giving me an opportunity to yammer on about myself a little more!
1. If you could have any super power, what would it be?
To fly. And I’m not saying this in a cheesy, I-want-to-skim-across-the-sky-screaming-rainbows-and-butterflies kind of way. Do you know how expensive plane tickets are these days? If you were able to travel to faraway lands (or, you know, back home for Thanksgiving) without having to worry about the cost of such nonsense, I’d have quit school by now.
2. Do you prefer grocery shopping or clothes shopping?
If it’s for athletic clothes, I definitely prefer clothes shopping. But grocery shopping beats normal clothes shopping any day.
3. If you were another person, would you be friends with you?
Probably not. I think I’m a rather boring individual. (Said in a British accent, because “rather” always makes me think of Brits. Although if I had a British accent I’d be friends with me…solely because of the accent.)
4. What’s your favorite way to show somebody that you love them?
Make fun of them and use heavy sarcasm.
…seriously. I’ve actually had arguments with a (now ex-) boyfriend about how much sarcasm I use. But you know that I officially am comfortable around you if I feel like I can make fun of you and not have to apologize/say “I’m joking” afterwards.
5. Are you more like your mom, your dad, or neither?
I’m definitely more like my dad. My mom and my dad are almost exact opposites–my dad’s soft-spoken, avoids confrontation if he can help it, and I don’t think he’s ever held a grudge in his life. I’m a wuss and will do anything to avoid confrontation. And usually, if I don’t have a lot of meaningful things to say, I won’t say them. Except when I’m bored, or stressed, or tired, then all bets are off.
6. Do you have a secret special talent?
I’m really good at making my contacts fall out, to the annoyance of my parents (who get to pay for my contacts) and me (who has to deal with being half-blind without them).
I also have talents for not having talents–I can’t whistle, or snap my fingers, or roll up my tongue, or roll my r’s (my French has always suffered because of this, and when I learn Spanish that’ll probably suffer too), or dislocate body parts at will, or do any other grotesque but strangely awesome things other people can do.
7. What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done?
I don’t know if this is the absolute craziest, because my brain isn’t working properly right now, but I’ve sat in the front seat of the Millennium Force roller coaster at Cedar Point. I’m an adrenaline junkie and I love roller coasters, but sitting in the front seat of a monster like that is insane. I’m pretty sure I peed about 14 times while on it.

8. If you could listen to one band/singer for the rest of your life, who would it be?
That awkward moment when I actually had to go through my phone and see what artists I actually listen to…we’re gonna say it’s a tie between Rascal Flatts and Luke Bryan.
9. Do you have any tattoos or piercings? If so, where? If not, would you ever get one?
I used to have my ears pierced, but they’re pretty close to being closed up by now…I also have a giant dragon across my back. It’s the Hungarian Horntail from Harry Potter because it’s so bada$$ and it’s my life mission to be like it. (I don’t actually have any tattoos. I’m too much of a wimp for that…)
10. If you could be famous for one thing, what would it be?
I’m already famous. For being awesome. Duh.
Roller coasters? Love ‘em? Hate ‘em?
If you could listen to one band/singer for the rest of your life, who would it be?
